Recipe for Success

sweet freedom bakery!

You’re all for treats, but a few Gummi Bears can send your babe to Bellyacheville.

Get off the candy train and make Sweet Freedom Bakery your next stop.

The just-opened spot specializes in gluten-free, allergen-friendly, and vegan delights. Its crack team of pastry makers gives traditional butter and eggs the boot, subbing in healthier options like agave nectar and coconut oil. You’ll forget that the muffins, brownies, cobblers, and custom birthday cakes are concocted healthily.

Have a doubt? An ingredient list is posted next to each item.

That’s first class.
